    What happened to the plaque that used to be on the pedestal underneath this statue? Why was it not replaced for memorial day?
  • 1427 Ella Grasso Boulevard New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    There are loud, unlicensed, not street-legal dirt bikes going up and down Boulevard doing wheelies. This happens all the time!!! It is dangerous and loud and I wish something could be done about it!!!
  • Edgewood Ave New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    While riding in the bike lane eastbound on Edgewood Blvd this morning at 8:25, a CT Transit Bus Driver (Q3, Bus#347) tried to run me down by veering into the bikelane I was in and running me into parked cars. He WAS NOT pulling up to a busstop at the time. At the next redlight, I pulled up to the left of the bus (now stopped at a busstop) and told(his window was open) the driver to allow more room when passing cyclists. He laughed and told me to get off the road. This is actually an ongoing issue with this particular driver. I've been on his bus before when he has done the same thing to other cyclists. I've asked him directly to be more courteous to cyclists, and called the incidents into CT Transit, but have never had anyone follow up.
  • 372 Edgewood Avenue New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Edgewood
    Cars illegally parked on Edgewood avenue mall
  • 359 Edgewood Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Edgewood

    I know the police are busy but its ridiculous that we are allowing people to destroy this park by putting their cars on it, consider the environmental hazard of oil leaking into the grass area as well.

    It is a daily occurrence that I am seeing cars parked on the public green area that divides the two directions of Edgewood ave, the issue happens in the evenings. This is unacceptable especially considering taxpayers pay to maintain this property.

    If there is not enough parking in the area then maybe the zoning needs to be looked at as far as the rental properties.

  • 364 Edgewood Ave New Haven, Connecticut - Edgewood

    Attention Department of Children and Families (DCF).

    Report of child abuse: the parents of children at this address are teaching their children to ride ATVs and dirt bikes on the street, sidewalks and in the edgewood mall and park.

    It is only a matter of time before they seriously hurt themselves or someone else.

  • 89 99 Ellsworth Ave New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    Pike International bought the building at the northeast corner of Chapel Street and Ellsworth Avenue last year, and, while they put a lot of work into it, they really need to take one more step and redo this sidewalk. It's badly broken and a hazard to walk over. Pike's a big company, and it certainly can afford to repair about 100 ft of sidewalk for the safety of its tenants and other residents of the neighborhood.
  • Traffic/Road Safety Acknowledged
    432 Edgewood Ave New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Edgewood

    This intersection has seen *three* crashes in just over a week: 7/28, 8/5, & just now 8/8. These are just the ones I've been home to witness the aftermath. At least one was very severe involving a motorcycle & car, & I don't know if the motorcyclist survived. In my eight years of living here, crashes at this intersection are commonplace. No hyperbole-- crashes here happen with scary frequency.

    It is clear, but I'd like the data to back up my assertion (who keeps crasj statistics?), that this traffic signal -- a blinking yellow on Edgewood and a blinking red on Edgewood-- is completely ineffective.

    The city can no longer wait. We need immediate attention & intervention at this intersection. How many more crashes & potential fatalities are necessary before action?

  • 1456 Ella T Grasso Blvd New Haven, CT - Edgewood

    This is less of a store and more of a private party. "Customers" hang out in and around the store drinking and talking with the employees. Sometime it spills over to the parking lot across the street.

    The store has only been there a few months and it's getting really bad. This was a very unwelcome addition to the neighborhood.

  • 162-170 Norton Pkwy New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Edgewood
    Norton is more than wide enough for bike lanes (road diet) in each direction. The primary benefit is that narrowing the vehicle travel lanes in this way would help calm traffic.
  • 665 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT 06511 - Edgewood
    Tried crossing Whalley Ave. on marked crosswalk (stood in crosswalk, kept slowly inching my way into the road) at West Park Ave. and was passed by a horde of motorists. No one even thought about stopping. Also got trapped in the middle of the road when cars did not stop on the westbound side. I think a new traffic light is warranted here with a countdown-style walk light for the crosswalk. This would help slow traffic on this dangerous stretch of Whalley and allow people to cross safely. Also recommended is a bicycle-actuated signal, so cyclists can turn on to Whalley safely.
